MoTeC M1 Software Tutorial: Data Logging
Optimising the calibration of an M1 ECU is made much faster and easier with the use of data logging.
Through the course so far we have already looked at the time graph function inside M1 Tune which allows data to be logged and viewed in real time.
The M1 ECUs also offer a sophisticated onboard data logging system that allows them to log data on the road or racetrack for analysis later.
The M1 ECUs offer three separate levels of data logging, that can be used dependent on your requirements.
As shipped, the M1 ECUs include ‘Level 1’ logging which allows channels to be logged at between 1 and 10 hertz.
This is going to be adequate for basic logging, but for more complex logging you may want to consider purchasing an upgrade to ‘Level Two’ or ‘Level Three’ logging.
‘Level Two’ logging allows up to two hundred configurable channels to be be logged and each channel can be logged at any frequency between one and two hundred hertz.
‘Level Three’ logging allows up to 1000 configurable channels to be logged as frequencies of up to 1000 hertz.
Level Three logging also allows 8 individual security-based log sets to be configured.
All the logging options include 120mb of logging memory for the M130 and M170 ECUs, and 250mb for the M150 and M190 ECUs.
In this section we will look at how to configure and retrieve logged data.
